Fort Hawkins Foundation, Inc.
The Fort Hawkins Commission will develop plans and organize activities to bring about the complete restoration of the frontier fort that is the birthplace of Macon, Georgia. The first step will be a fund raising project encompassing both foundations and individuals. As this is underway, the Commission will conduct archaeological studies and historical research allowing the Commission to interpret the Fort Hawkins story accurately and in detail. Once funds are raised, the actual reconstruction of the fort will begin. The work of the Commission is complete when the fort and/or interpretive center is open to the public and a military and historical education program is developed telling the story of the young nation’s struggle to create a country in the southern wilderness.
